Abstract

A waste sort is a process of hand-sorting onsite waste in order to quantify the amount and type of solid waste generated by businesses, organizations and municipalities to determine how much waste is ultimately ending up in the landfill. Data from waste sort events assists in identifying current waste practices and the feasibility of implementing commodity specific waste reduction, recycling and education programs.
